RALEIGH, N.C., March 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cohesity, the leader of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced the grand opening of its second major U.S. office that will be home to more than 100 employees working across a range of functions in Raleigh, North Carolina. Following quickly on the heels of the December ribbon-cutting for Cohesity’s new headquarters in San Jose, California, the Raleigh office opening backs up Cohesity’s commitment to scale the company sustainably in order to meet the surge in demand for its hyperconverged secondary storage platform. The grand opening ceremony scheduled for 5 p.m. today will feature Cohesity Founder and CEO Mohit Aron and Cohesity COO and President Rob Salmon, among others.
Building on Cohesity’s incredible momentum in 2017, in which the company doubled its headcount and increased revenue by more than 600 percent, the new East Coast office will primarily focus on support, sales, development, and performance. Currently occupying more than 22,000 square feet of space in Raleigh, Cohesity will join a growing community of high-tech companies with a presence in “Research Triangle Park,” an area that Forbes has ranked sixth in the nation for tech job growth, stemming from its high number of residents with advanced degrees.
Along with the office opening, Cohesity announced two new customers in the region – Piedmont Healthcare, a community health provider that operates 10 hospitals with 3,000 physicians and nearly 22,000 employees, and Champion Credit Union, which offers financial services to over 24,000 people in North Carolina. Cohesity’s expanded presence on the East Coast will also support its rapidly growing federal customer base, overseen by its newly announced chief technology officer, Federal and U.S. East, Steve Grewal.
“The opening of Cohesity’s second major U.S. office in Raleigh underscores the rapid growth that we have seen in just a few years since we launched, along with our commitment to support that growth with strong organizational infrastructure,” said Rob Salmon, president and COO, Cohesity. “We continue to expand our presence in the U.S. and abroad as more enterprises realize the transformative value of hyperconverged secondary storage.”
